    We can relegate them if we win.

    Sad got quite a few mates from Bradford and combined with an excellent curry a great fixture.

    Same team, Yes even burge as playoffs still alive just

    They have sunderland to play away so this friday could breath life into our playoff hopes

    Although pompey on monday will be extremly tough as they can make autos. That said so could sunderland!

    Got to be same team as yesterday and all out attack as this currently is our best form of defence.
    Shame for them but someone has to get relegated and it’s not just about Friday if that happens-Bradford haven’t been good enough all season.

    This is going to end up an absolute borefest isn't it? Probably a 0-0. Can't see Bradford being anywhere near as open as Sunderland. They're at the wrong end of the table for us as well as them. Fully expect this to be a frustrating one, and our forwards to struggle.

    a few years ago people were saying they were the model to follow with their reduced price season tickets etc.
    What went wrong?

    Na, I meant with the ticket model etc.
    As a side note I noticed several cash turnstiles yesterday £20. Not a bad price for pay on the day that-fair play!

    I predict Bradford sticking 11 behind the ball but after a win like yesterday I think we’ll win 1 or 2 - 0.

    I want Pompey to beat us, in reality the play offs are a step too far, and always had a soft sport for Pompey. Plus would love them to make sure Sunderland don't make Auto's.

    Yes you read that right. We aren't making the play offs either way, so I would prefer they beat us and Sunderland lose out than beat them and help them out.

    Keep the same team, just go out to try and get as many goals as we can.

    Get an early goal and they will collapse. Important to start quickly. No early goal and we’ll get nervous and it’ll end up 1-1 or 0-1.

    Should be a comfortable win but our season who knows. Think we might still do it but a struggle to 1-0/ 2-1

    Too much confidence can be dangerous. I think we will win but as all too often this season our achilles heal has been consistency.
    It's just too late for the playoff's which is regretable. Just hope we can keep the majority of our squad close season and prepare for a promotion run next year.
    I genuinely feel that could all be scuppered if we leave the Ricoh.

    No excuses, need to win this game to keep us dreaming of the playoffs. Keep the same team which started at Sunderland.

    I have just listened to Guardian Football Weekly podcast, which has on it two Sunderland supporters , Barry Glendenning and Jonathan Wilson. Wilson was at the game and is a very astute dispassionate observer. Described Saturday as the most boring 9 goal thriller he'd ever seen. Blamed the added time totally on Cov City time wasting which he though was the most elaborate he's ever seen. But also that Sunderland's defence was so bad, they were lucky to escape with only conceding five. Not sure I heard any of these points made by City fans at the match

    I didn’t get he chance to go on Saturday, but a friend of mine did tell me it was the weirdest game he’d ever seen

    dont get me wrong it clearly wasnt boring but outside of the goals there wasnt any great play and was a by the numbers league 1 game. i never felt excited watching it, but perhaps thats cos im a fan and spent a large part of match angry with burge and fact we kept conceding equalisers. could only enjoy goals for a few minutes,full time i could relax.

    but still there were 9 goals!!! lmao i feel like an idiot even writing this but i just mean i can kinda see where he is coming from. i will always remember the 5-4 win over sunderland but im not sure it would even make my top 10 games as a cov fan in terms of enjoying it, maybe because playoffs look gone,i dunno

    still we won 5-4 ahaha fuck mackems!
